Dr. Joan Winter is a Certified Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine Practitioner in Mixed Animal Medicine and is recognized as a Fellow of the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture 2016. She integrates both Eastern and Western Veterinary Medicine in companion and sport horses, dogs and cats. She is a mobile veterinarian servicing Simi Valley, California and nearby areas.
“As a veterinarian, I do all I can to provide the most advanced care through my knowledge of Western and Eastern Veterinary Medicine in both the equine and small animal fields. I believe in compassionate and thorough care of the whole body to treat not just the symptoms, but the underlying root of your pet’s medical issue.”
“It is my goal to utilize both the Eastern and a Western perspective by assessing your pet’s endocrine, cardiovascular and nervous systems, as well as the body’s set of Meridian/Channel lines, its forces of Qi, Blood, Jing, Shen and Jin-ye. In doing so, I’m able to produce a more complete picture what is occurring in your pet’s body to determine what is ultimately causing his or her acute or chronic issue.”
“The most rewarding part for me is the human/animal bond. To see an animal heal, they have their own way of thanking you. To see the owner smile, that’s been earth shattering to me. To be a good veterinarian you have to be compassionate to not just the animal but to the person who owns that animal.”
Any glimpse into the life of an animal quickens our own and makes it so much larger and better in every way.
